Had to come here after being recommended by a few people and was not disappointed. Everything was delicious and well flavoured. The beef mishkaki was probably my favourite but the prawns and masala chips were lovely too. It's in a good location with many other...restaurants. It's directly opposite Sultan al Arab, which is another one highly recommended. Alas, I'll have to wait until my next visit to Dubai to try there. Highly recommended - something for everyone. If you don't like it spicy (my kids don't), they'll make it plain.More

Visited with my family. Large number of tables and chairs - didn’t book. Paid Parking available around the back. Limited menu - grilled meat dishes. We ordered chicken wings, lamb chops, chicken tikka, mutton seekh kebabs and chooza grilled chicken. Some of the dishes came...with fries and we also ordered some butter naan. All the dishes were tasty but the chooza chicken was the best - very well marinated and juicy. Everyone enjoyed all the grill food - it all tasted fresh and tasty. Service was good - not exactly smiling or full of words but did the trick. Manager (or owner) came round asking if all was ok. Place looked busy without being packed. I would go there again.More

It was good to experience Hashmi in Dubai having been on many occasions over the years in Nairobi. The chicken tikka marinades and accompanying sauces are very different to your regular Indian or Pakistani restaurants. We had the Chicken Tikka (breast piece is the best),...poussin, beef kebabs and pili pili and masala chips. My personal favourite is their chicken tikka and it was marinated and cooked to perfection. Passion juice is good too. Yes, I recommend if you want something a bit different.More

We ate at this very famous East African restaurant which originates from Nairobi and the restaurant is in Barsha near the Mall of Emirates. I took my family for iftar and found the place choker block as the restaurant in spite of recent renovations was...on the smaller size. Our experience of the service was poor as it took forever to get our order. However, there were complimentary starters of lovely made samosas which kept our mouths shut as we almost filled our tummies with these complimentary starter and there was plenty of them. We tried almost everything on the menu, including Poussin chicken, Chooza Chicken , Mishkaki, Kebabs, all the three types of chips, BBQ chicken wings and more. The food was really delicious and cooked on the BBQ, you could smell the coal and the juicy meats were delightful. I did not care much about the Poussin chicken as it has skin and is oily but this is a matter of taste. All the food has a lot of chillies and if you like that, this is a gourmet paradise for you. The juices were all fresh and lovely and the sauces were very nice too. We had the Kulfi and it was as good as Badsha Kulfi we had in Mumbai outside Crowford market and remember Badsha is the KING of KULFI, so if you are in Dubai, just go for Hashemi Kulfi, you won't be let down.More

I’ve eaten at and loved Hashmi food my whole life so much so that once I moved to England I’d stop there for my last meal on visits to Nairobi and bring a take away back with me. The news that they were closing in...Nairobi was not good. I didn’t need to worry. I visited their them in Dubai earlier in the month and it was as good as ever. It’s also in a convenient location a few minutes from The Mall Of the Emirates. I’d highly recommend it to anyone in the area. The only thing missing was the tangerine juiceMore

Hashmi’s is a family run restaurant serving East African Cuisine located in Al Barsha, Dubai. I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and can vouch for their quality and service in addition to the scrumptious food they serve. Their menu consists of...a variety of dishes originally from Nairobi. They serve an array of lip smacking sauces with a simple salad prior to your order. The Poussin Chicken is deep fried chicken smothered with poussin sauce and is highly recommended along with their Chooza Chicken which is similar to tandoori chicken but slightly different in flavour. My personal favourites are the Pillipilli Chips (fries with poussin sauce) and the Stir-Fried Chilly-Lemon Prawns. We also tried the Beef Mushkaki, the Paneer (the paneer quality was awesome) and the Mutton Kebabs with Butter Naan. The meal ended with Kulfi, the only dessert they have on the menu which again is a family recipe. The restaurant is unlike commercial restaurants and some of their gestures are truly heartwarming. The menu stays true to the cuisine, there are no forced dishes. The fact that they serve just one dessert and offer bottled water for free, says a lot about their values and convictions. Highly recommend this restaurant if you wish to try East African Cuisine. It’s one of those restaurants you want to keep going back to!More

They've managed to migrate the quality of food from Nairobi to Dubai without any issues - Hashmi excel on great food done well. Their range of barbequed meats are out of this world, made extra-special by the marinades and sauces. A big plus for the...Dubai store is the addition of BBQ prawns on the menu. Everything is incredible value. I'll be a regular here!More
